What is Western Cuisine?

Do you like western food? Western food has spread rapidly out across the globe.

French Fries is a staple Western dish.

Many cuisines were European and continental.  However western food has spread like fire around the globe.

Many people around the world adore Western cuisine, and the fast food chains especially American food franchises, have spread around the world. Global chains include MacDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, Pizza Hut.

Traditions in Western cuisine

Most of Western cuisine is derived from classic French fare.

Auguste Escoffier’s modernization of classical French cooking techniques serves as the base of the culinary world.

Today his adaptation includes 5 foundational sauces:

Béchamel (or white sauce)

Even with more sauces being created for Western dishes these days, it is not hard to see that the root sauces are the bases of those creations. E.g. white wine sauce and mushroom sauce are derived from velouté.

Plating and servings

Despite its fluctuating form, Western cuisine does hold certain rules that remain faithful to the European tradition.

Plating, for example, has not changed very much.

It is still  regular to see a plate of protein (either meat, fish, or poultry) in combination with a starchy side (potatoes, rice or pasta) and some vegetables for a main course.

Soups and salads are still served as starters, and the meal still closes with a dessert at the end.

Nordic traces

These days, the emphasis has swung to Nordic countries such as Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland, for their focus on region-specific ingredients and cuisine.

With people getting more involved and interested in where their food originated, this Nordic trend is influencing Western cuisine all around the world with its culinary ideologies and cooking methodology.

From fermenting and pickling produce to curing fish, the definition of Western cuisine is once more undergoing a revolution and evolving to encompass a broader spectrum of ingredients, styles, and techniques than traditionally defined, even adapting Eastern, Persian influences.

Western cuisine – typical dishes

French fries

French fries are a western food regarded as fast food and one of the most popular and most spread out western food around the world.

Hot dogs

Hot dogs are a highly popular dish in western culture.

They can be a roll of beef or bacon meat and can be served with other delicious toppings to complete a meal course.

Mostly, sausages are served in the breakfast meals as an accompaniment.

Bacon Sausages are found across the world, besides the Arab nations where bacon is prohibited by religion.


Pasta as a western food has found acceptance around the world despite its side effects on health, potentially linked to fermenting cancers.

Its preparation is simple and quick, where an accompaniment is generally acceptable. It can be served with sauce prepared according to different cuisine in a particular region.


Pizza is common in fast food joints, more so where travelers throng for fast food although many Chinese nationals do not like it.

Notably, pizza has gained popularity in the last two decades through the upsurge of restaurants and tour destinations around the world.

Baked Rice

Among all the foods in the world, cooked rice is believed to be the most common and most consumed western food.

It is a dish that feeds most people on the planet than any other type of food.


Bread is a western baked dough, preferably eaten in the morning breakfast with tea, coffee, or milk.

People have adapted this dish all over the world as their form of food in the morning, not just in restaurants but at home also.

European cuisine – tradition and evolution

Western food has largely spread across the world, largely due to tourism and the internet tends to publicize this information.

It is common to find different cuisines advertised on the menu in different restaurants, mostly because of the different nationalities of guests who come from many parts of the world.

Gradually, most foods are gaining global acceptance as an alternative to the cultural foods in each region.

The cuisines of Western countries are diverse, although there are shared traits that distinguish them from those of other regions.

Compared with traditional East Asia cuisine, meat is served in more generous portions and a central feature.

Steak and cutlet are common dishes across the West. Western cuisines also heavily feature red wine and sauces as condiments, seasonings, or accompaniments (in part due to the difficulty of seasonings percolating through more generous, lavish meat portions used in European cuisine).

Multiple dairy products are utilized for cooking. There are hundreds of varieties of cheese and other fermented milk products.

White wheat-flour bread has historically been the principle starch, but historically, most people consumed bread, flat breads, or porridge boiled from rye, spelt, barley, and oats.

The upper class also consumed and mass produced pasta, dumplings, and pastries.

The potato has become a desired starch component in the diet of Europeans and their diaspora since the European colonization of the Americas.

Maize is relatively uncommon in European diets than with the Americas; however, corn meal (polenta or mămăligă) is a major component  of the cuisine of Italy and the Balkans.

Although flat breads (especially with toppings such as pizza or tarte flambée) and rice are consumed in Europe, they are only staple foods in  certain areas, concentrated in Southern Europe.

Salads are an integral part of European cuisine.
